Figure 5-9.The LMS-11 Status display.
LMS Should always be green.
LSN Indicates that the LMS-11 is listening
for the link audio.
PRE Indicates that a preamble has been
PHA Indicates that a phase reference frame
has been detected.
CC1 Indicates the first frame of a control
CC2 Indicates the second frame of a control
EOT Indicates that the LMS-11 has detected
the end of transmission.
NOIS Indicates that the received data frame
did not pass the data quality test.
DATA Indicates that the LMS-11 has
detected a data frame that has passed the
quality test. Note that the control codes and
phase reference frames are also data frames.
REC Shows the status of the raw record
function of the LMS-11. The indicator will be
green when the recording is turned on and red
when the recording is stopped.
The last two fields of the status box indicate the
performance of the net. The %DATA: field will be
followed by a number representing the percentage of
net cycle time message data is transmitted with no
errors. The NCT: displays the net cycle time in
seconds. Net cycle time is the time required for one
completed polling of the net. It can be measured from
control stop to control stop from NCS, or the operator
can specify a PU as the reference for net cycle time.
The operator can also specify the number of cycles to
use to determine net cycle time. The operator makes
these entries using the summarize parameter in the
NET DISPLAY mode.
The Net Display mode is activated when the
operator presses the NET key on the keyboard. The
Net Display mode presents the following two separate
types of information: a Net Summary (summarize
mode) or a PU History (history mode). In the Net
Summary mode, the Net Display presents a summary
of quantitative information about the performance of
up to 21 PUs. In the PU History mode, the LMS-11
displays data for a selected PU. The most recent 21
transmissions of the specified PU will be displayed
while in the PU History mode.
The Net Display mode is only available when the
link is in the Roll Call mode. Figure 5-10 shows a
screen for the Net Display in the Summarize mode
and figure 5-11 shows the screen for a PU History
After the operator enters the Net Display mode,
there are four operator entries that can affect the
information and how it is displayed. These are NCS,
PU, SIDEBAND, and SUMMARIZE. All of the
entries are displayed as part of the header of the Net
Display screen. The NCS, PU, and SIDEBAND
fields are on the left side of the screen, and the
SUMMARIZE field is on the right side of the screen
just below the date and time fields.
